We've spent far too much time over the months wondering whether Demi Lovato and Niall Horan are hooking up.

And although both parties have denied much is going on there romantically (and Niall has been with girlfriend Amy Green who he's now broken up with), every so often one of them says something that makes us raise an eyebrow.

And this time it's X Factor judge Demi, who has confessed that the One Direction star is SPECIAL.

(As far as we know, being someone's special friend is basically lingo for boyfriend).

Demi exclusively told an omg! insider: "All of the One Direction guys are great - but there is something a little special about him."

OKAY.

What's more, Demi has revealed that Irish cheeky chappy Niall has been cheering her up since she broke her leg.

She told our source: "Niall is really one of the most fun people to be around. It has obviously not been great hobbling around on a broken leg - but Niall can even make that funny.

"He can make light of the most serious situations - and every girl needs somebody like Niall in their life.

"I know when a text comes through from Niall there is a great chance it is going to actually make me laugh out loud."

Cute!

So perhaps that Niall is now officially single and back on the market the two of them can finally just get it on?

As we reported yesterday, Niall has split from his girlfriend Amy Green, after it emerged he doesn't have enough time for her in his hectic schedule.

He was supposed to have been dating the drama student since back in October.

A source told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "Sadly, it is over between Niall and Amy. He finished it because he didn't have enough time with everything he has to do.

"Understandably she was disappointed because she had been in a relationship before she started seeing Niall and chose him over her boyfriend.

"But there are no real hard feelings and they're still close."

And what is even more convenient is that Demi, who broke her leg when she slipped on the floor of her appartment, has jetted into London for Fashion Week.
